Very impressed

27.07.2016
I use this guitar to play essentially 80's hard rock/heavy-thrash metal/hair metal, from Pantera, Anthrax, Megadeth, Judas Priest to Dokken, Great White... and Steel Panther to name a few.

Finish: Metallic Black is comparable to what you would find on a car, glossy black with tons of tiny sparkles, it gives a more "glam" touch to the guitar, but if you stand at like 0.5-1m from it, the finish will look like a glossy matte/satin black. It is unscratchable, a heavy duty coat.

The Seymour Duncan Distortion came out in 1980 and sound like a JB's on steroids, basically the same legit sound profile all around, but with a bit more highs (which is nice for soloing) and definitely more gain, as those magnets are ceramics instead of Alnicos, I can play pretty much any style of music as I'm using Bias FX + Reaper right now.

I love the compound radius fingerboard, makes it play chords and solos effortlessly on the higher frets, the Ebony fretboard is silk smooth, dense and without any grain or cracks, plain black with dark silver piranha inlays (I really dig them). You don't really have the occasion to feel the wood as the Jumbo frets reduces/removes the friction between it and your fingers.

Back of the neck: Is oiled satin plain maple: no amount of sweat or the naturally oiled human skin can make this surface sticky. The silk smooth feel in incomparable to any glossy neck of any guitar I own. I get butterflies in my stomach just by looking at the legendary pointy Jackson black headstock with white logo on it.

The Floyd Rose came properly intonated and leveled, and the action was surprisingly low, I cannot wrap my mind around the fact that the strings look like they literally touch the frets, although no fret buzz whatsoever can be heard at any fret, and all of them are playable, leveled with no sharp edges, simply outstanding.

Once re-stringed (with 9-42's), stretched, re-leveled, tuned and locked, I could use and abuse the whammy bar like a madman, doing harmonic squeals for like 20 mins, dive-bombs, etc..., you name it, this thing stayed in tune flawlessly like no one played it yet, and the sustain is right on par with my all mahogany Ibanez Les Paul shaped Artist series.

The Nickel finish on all the metallic parts has the same "shinyness" as Chrome, but a bit darker, which is simply gorgeous and blends well with the finish.

The pickups can also be used for incredible cleans, but after lowering the volume a bit, because of their high output.

Although it wasn't mentioned, this guitar came with a pair of Dunlop "Straplok" straplocks, in a satin nickel finish.

The only "con" is the lack of coil splitting, but I already soldered a push-pull volume pot on it, so yeah, not really a con here, but it definitely adds versatility to this already incredible, well crafted guitar.

People are kind of afraid of purchasing a guitar made in Indonesia for that high of a price-point (paid ¤999.99), but I've heard on various forums/Reddit posts that today's Indonesian made Jackson are like on par/a bit higher quality that the 90's "Professional" Jacksons made in Japan, and this guitar definitely checks in and packs a serious punch, it breathes quality on every aspect.

Will buy again if I had to, haven't discovered any flaw so far.

PS: I'm not sponsored by Jackson or just anyone, this guitar is simply put epic and feels legit, in my opinion of course.
